Whenever I think my brother and I are dysfunctional I remind myself of the Oasis brothers, who make my brother and I look like members of The Partridge Family. All this time I blamed Liam for their issues, but ever since Oasis split up amidst their kin-infighting, I realized they both might be to blame. During a recent concert, Noel Gallagher demanded
that his concertgoers stand, saying they looked as if they were “at the cinema,” and he then called out, “Do you have to sit down?!” I absolutely hate when people stand at a concert when it’s unnecessary. In fact, I’m always tempted to throw M&Ms at people who are swaying back-and-forth during lower tempo songs while getting drunker. Sure I’ll dance for Britney Spears, but Noel Gallagher?
“It’s not over yet. There are a few things which need to be sorted out. I didn’t want this to happen. It’s not nice suing your family but like I said, he was telling porkies (lies) for the sake of his mates and journalists to get a wise crack on me… If he listens to his lawyers and does the right thing then it’ll be well and truly over. I never wanted it to happen but it has to happen.” Liam Gallagher on his eternal feud
with his brother Noel Gallagher after he sued Noel for suggesting that Liam missed a concert because of a hangover.
If you’ve ever heard of Oasis, then you’re likely familiar with the venomous hatred between the Gallagher brothers. Liam Gallagher fronted the band, which included his brother, Noel Gallagher, along with four other members who fortunately survived Liam Gallagher’s very public anger issues. The Gallagher brothers have long been splashed across tabloids for their sibling acrimony, which ultimately escalated into a pre-concert fist-fight, forcing Noel to finally quit the band for good. Liam Gallagher subsequently formed a new band that includes everyone from Oasis
except his brother Noel. The band is called Beady Eye
, and when asked about Oasis
in a new interview for MTV Hive, LIam did not disappoint. Please take the time to read excerpts from the interview below. At the very least, it will make you feel really great about your relationships with your siblings. (Further Reading

The future of Oasis: “Get over it. Oasis is yesterday. It’s fucking done.”
Ryan Adam’s version of Wonderwall: “It’s shit to me, man. I like Ryan Adams and I like some of his songs. But I hated what he did with “Wonderwall. It’s not his fault. To be quite honest, I’ve never really cared for the original either.”
On why you won’t hear Oasis songs on the Beady Eye tour: “We could’ve if we wanted, but we’ve got a lot more fucking self-respect. It’s why we don’t fucking play somebody else’s fucking songs when we can make our own.
Keith Richard and Mick Jagger working together (despite reported tension)- “Yeah, and what have they fucking done for the last twenty-five fucking years?”
